Sonora, CA– Many Mother Lode parents are resting easy after over 200 Sonora Golden Regiment band members returned home safely today.
On Thursday, March 17th, Sonora High´s Golden Regiment Marching Band, along with a dozen chaperones, left Sonora for Denver, Colorado to perform in the St. Patrick´s Day Parade on Saturday.
During their five-day trip, high school students had the opportunity to tour the state capital, visit with Colorado´s new governor Bill Ritter, Jr., as well as perform a concert at Erie High School north of Denver.
Trumpet player April Peterson says the band´s performance wasawesome” and that people in Denver were screamingSonora Golden Regiment rocks.” After a long trip home on several tour buses, tired students arrived back at Sonora High School at about 3:20pm ready for a good night´s sleep in their own beds.
